Ceramic Hunter Television Lamp and Planter C1950s Item # R3380
When radios became common place in the 1930's and '40's, consumers were afraid that the low glow emitting from the radio dial would damage their eye sight. So, charming Radio Lamps became popular, adding a little more light to the room and often serving the dual purpose of decorating the otherwise "homely" technology. Thus by the time televisions came along in the 50's, it was traditional to have a small decorative lamp atop your entertainment cabinet, and 'Radio Lamps' became 'Television Lamps'.
This example, which likely dates from the late 1950's, is cast from porcelain and features a hunter, mid pull on his bow. The light comes from the back base of the lamp, and the socket is flanked by two small ceramic built-in vases, to display some faux greenery or silk flowers behind the lamp for added ambience.
